Hainan Airlines launched Beijing - Edinburgh direct flights

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Edinburgh scotlandHainan Airlines started four-weekly, year-round service from Beijing Capital International Airport to Scotland's Edinburgh Airport. This flight is Scotland’s first connection to the Far East.

The first ever direct flight between Scotland and China has landed at Edinburgh Airport, Scotland’s busiest airport. A piper from the world famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo welcomed passengers from Beijing to Scotland before piping them off on departure.

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said:“This first direct service from China to Edinburgh represents a gear change for Scottish tourism and further cements Scotland’s reputation as a world-class destination. As the Chinese market has grown over the years so too has the Scottish capital’s popularity with Chinese visitors and it continues to be the top destination outside of London.

“Through our ongoing work with key Chinese tour operators we have seen visitor itineraries extending over the years. Bringing visitors from China directly into the heart of Scotland will create greater opportunities for tourism businesses right across the country, as visitors stay longer and explore further.”
